You probably don't think about the pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the taps and appliances throughout your home very often. They are crucial to your daily routine. So, when the flow of water is interrupted, that's the time most homeowners become acutely aware of their pipes.
Do You Need Repiping?
Many plumbing issues, like minor leaks or breaks, can be fixed without needing to complete a repiping job. It's only when the problem is more serious or extensive that repiping becomes necessary. As the pipes in your home become older, they can start to wear and become prone to frequent leaks and breaks, which can cause flooding and serious damage in your home.
Another frequent reason for repiping is if a plumbing system is made up of several different kinds of materials. You may also want to consider repiping if there are any lead pipes in your home.
Common Signs That You May Need Repiping In Your Home
Some of the indicators that might suggest that part or all of your plumbing system may be in need of a repipe can include frequent leaks or drips. Some leaking pipes can be very difficult to detect; dripping slowly and resulting in a musty smell somewhere in the home.
Your pipes may also need to be replaced if you detect a metallic taste, a strange odor, or a milky or discolored look to your tap water.
